Next Step is to Import Demo Contents

Import XML for Demo Contents

Look for Import XML folder in unzipped package downloaded from themeforest and use the XML within it.
Go to the WordPress Admin > Tools > Import and click WordPress as displayed in image below.

At 1st time you need to install WordPress importer plugin

Once installed you need to activate the plugin and run the importer.

After importing XML file.

  1. Assign posts to an existing author.

Navigate to Appearance > Menus and use the Already Imported Menu from XML and assign it to theme location "Main Menu" from Menu Settings section below menu. After that save the menu. As pointed in screenshot below.

Next Step is to Configure Reading Settings

Configure Reading Settings

I am assuming that you have imported the XML successfully and you have home page and news page available for use. If this is not the case then simply create a new page using Home Template and name it as Home after that create another page using default template and name it as News.

To configure reading settings you need to visit WordPress Admin > Settings > Reading and choose that front page displays as static page. Then select Home as Front Page and News as Posts Page. As, displayed in screen shot below.

Translate Jobboard themes to another language

1. Download and open Poedit

There are several translations editors out there, some of which we’ll consider toward the end of this article.
Poedit has been around for several years and is a favorite among developers and translators in the WordPress community.
It’s also free to use, which eliminates a major barrier to entry for first-time translators.
Go ahead and download Poedit now. When the download completes, unzip the file and open the application. You will see this screen:

2. Open your theme’s .pot file in Poedit

Click the “Create new translation” option in Poedit and browse your hard drive for a local copy of the .pot file for your theme.
You should be able to find it in the folder titled “languages” within the theme folder.

3. Select a language

Poedit saves your translation according to the language and an associated country (for localization). Just begin typing the language and Poedit will fill it in for you. After you’ve entered the language, open a set of parentheses and enter the name of the country.

The resulting .po file will be titled according to abbreviations for the language and associated country. In our case, we’re using Peruvian Spanish, so our file will be es_PE.po. A Uruguayan Spanish translation would be es_UY.po, and a Vietnamese translation would end up being vi_VN.po. Makes sense, right?
Poedit creates these extensions automatically, but here’s a lengthy list of country and language codes if you’re interested.

4. Perform the translations

Here’s where your language skills come in! Go through every line of human-readable text in your theme and translate it to the target language. Remember, the .pot file has already compiled everything you need to translate. That’s how those lines of text got there.

Just highlight each line, one by one, and enter the translation in the box in the bottom left corner of the Poedit interface.

5. Save translations in .po and .mo form

When you save your new .po file from Poedit, the application automatically generates an additional .mo file and saves it in the same directory on your hard drive.

After saving the files to your hard drive, use an FTP client to upload both files to the “languages” folder in your theme’s directory. Now you just have to tell WordPress to use the translation you created!

6. Edit your wp-config.php file

Note: If you’re using WordPress 4.0 or higher (highly recommended at this point!) and you chose the target language during the WordPress setup process, you will not have to perform this step.

From your FTP client, locate the the wp-config.php file in the directory for your WordPress installation. Open the file in a text editor and find this line:

define ('WPLANG');

You will need to change this line to include the translation you just uploaded to WordPress. In our case, the .po and .mo files we uploaded bear the title id_ID, so we would modify the line as such:

define ('WPLANG', 'id_ID');

You’re done! Your theme should now output text in Bahasa Indonesian… or whatever your target language was.
